Manor Farm joins the Cetti's Club

Not mentioned in todays earlier report (see below) because I wanted to trawl through some field guides, the PC based BWP, British Birds etc to clarify the identification of a bird i'm not exactly familiar with. While following the Chiffchaff mentioned below anothe partially obscured brownish bird caught the eye skulking low in the hedgerow. Just really catching a bit of brown back at first I thought Robin and was about to dismiss it (sorry Robin) when it moved into clearer view and was an altogether different bird. I initially thought Cetti's but wasn't 100% sure of ID hence the last hours or so of study and this late post to confirm Cetti's Warbler, a new bird at the site. Now if only we could get it to sing...
